Sound keeps turning off when XP restarts

    Every time I restart XP, the sound settings disappear and I have to
    set it over again. There's a 3D audio icon in the system tray I have
    to open, select a picture of all the jacks on the back of the
    computer. You click on the color jack the speakers are plugged into
    and tell it to set that jack to "Front Speakers".

    The onboard sound is by:
    C-Media 3D, using audio codec CMI 9880

    And the motherboard is:
    Gigabyte 8I915P Pro

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Is the jack you are plugged into not for the front speakers by default? If
    so try plugging the speakers into the correct one. Another idea is that the
    system is not retaining your configuration settings when you restart. Check
    for a config file for the sound card and see if it changes between when you
    restart and correct the settings, if not that is your issue. You could also
    try reinstalling the audio drivers for your system

    It's different from what I'm used to, that's for sure. There are no
    defaults!? Everything is plug and play - you plug your speakers into
    any one of several jacks and a window pops up and asks what you just
    plugged into that jack. (Front speaker, back speaker, headphones...)
    Not sure where to find such a config file - I do some searching and
    try to find it. I guess I'm hoping someone here has the same
    motherboard and has come across the same problem. (I hate learning
    curves.) ; p

    Thanks - anyone else with suggestions?
